What Happens If You Hold Your Pee In For Too Long

It is highly uncomfortable and causes so much pain. Anyone who has held their urine in for a long time would agree with me when I say it can be a very painful experience. The pain associated with this can range from being mild to excruciating.
Holding your urine in your bladder for a very long time can cause you to lose concentration. Losing concentration can be a very dangerous thing to lose when engaging in certain very important activities such as driving a vehicle or operating heavy machinery. Driving a vehicle with a full bladder has been said to be as dangerous as driving while drunk because of the fact that the discomfort going on in the bladder can be severe enough to impair one’s judgment or make one to lose concentration. According to research, holding your urine for long periods of time without urinating can lead to a condition known as voiding dysfunction. Voiding dysfunction is the loss of the control of your bladder. This condition comes as a result of putting too much pressure on the bladder through holding your urine for very long periods. When too much pressure is put on the bladder, the bladder overstretches causing the sphincter to become erratic and unable to do its job properly, leading to a loss of bladder control.You can also suffer from kidney diseases if you constantly keep holding on to urine when you should be letting it leave your system.
Another problem associated with holding your urine is that over a certain period of time it can lead to urine retention. What is urinary retention? It is the condition whereby a person finds it difficult to urinate. This happens as a result of several factors. One of the causes of urinary retention is as a result of constantly holding your urine for long periods of time.
